This Policy Paper from the UK's Department for Exiting the European Union was part of a series produced by the UK negotiating team for discussion with the EU, in order to inform the development of the future framework.

It focused on the UK’s proposals for continued civil judicial cooperation.

Background

As the United Kingdom left the European Union, the Government would seek a deep and special partnership with the EU. Within this partnership, cross-border commerce, trade and family relationships would continue. Building on years of cooperation across borders, it was vital for UK and EU consumers, citizens, families and businesses, that there were coherent common rules to govern interactions between legal systems.

To this end, the UK, as a non-member state outside the direct jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), would seek to agree new close and comprehensive arrangements for civil judicial cooperation with the EU.

The United Kingdom government had already issued on the 22 August 2017 the fifth of a series of papers putting forward its negotiating position on the UK’s future partnership with the European Union (EU). It was published in the context of the negotiations being undertaken with the EU for the UK to leave the union following the Brexit referendum vote of June 2016.

Framework for the UK-EU economic partnership

This Policy Paper published in May 2018 by the United Kingdom: Department for Exiting the European Union was part of a series produced by the UK negotiating team for discussion with the EU, in order to inform the development of the future framework.

It explained the UK Government's vision for the future UK-EU Economic Partnership. An economic partnership, that went beyond any existing Free Trade Agreement (FTA), covering more sectors and with deeper cooperation.

The future framework would set out the terms of the future EU-UK relationship, to be translated into legally binding agreements after the UK’s withdrawal.

Civil judicial cooperation was a cross-cutting area that enabled many areas of the future economic partnership to operative effectively.

The UK and the EU would conclude the future framework alongside the Withdrawal Agreement later in 2018.
